This stuff is absolutely awesome to clean your house with. I was really quite afraid that the stuff was going to be hippy-like and not have the moxy to clean powerfully. I was so wrong....The toilet bowl cleaner worked like none other.....

Mrs. Meyers clean day products.....Awesome. The other name brand products were good, and cleaned effectively, but this stuff is better on the environment and leaves everything with a nice smell rather than toxic fumes.

Cillit Bang! Bang! and the dirt is gone...

That advert pissed me off so much (I hate when adverts shout at me) that I avoided trying the product for about three years. I have now tried it and it is ridiculousky effective stuff. Like...when they show on the advert someone spraying the Cillit Bang (!!!) onto a greasy cooker hob, thick and blackened and never gone come clean again, no how....and then after ten seconds the hand appears with a sponge and just totally wipes away the black grease with no scrubbing.....that actually happens with Cillit Bang (!!!).

Is there some UK pronunciation of "Cillit" that's not immediately apparent to us Yanks?

Ooooh, cleaning products.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Not for general cleaning so much as marks, stains, anything that "won't" come off. It took black marker off a wall, crayon off a linoleum floor, and 5 years of gray gunk off patio furniture, all of which had been previously scrubbed senseless with a variety of cleaning products.

As with so many other things, the ads made it look gimmicky, and it wasn't until a woman I know demonstrated it for me--because she carries one in her purse at all times simply for the purpose of convincing other people how amazing it is--that I really understood.

This stuff is excellent. Not as slimy as KY, persistent enough to make things easier until it really isn't needed anymore.

We have a rang of cleaning products over here called 'easy off bam' and the emphasis is on the 'bam'. I suspect it's the same company but different name maybe. It's pretty good stuff.

I love my little electric garlic roaster! Silly gadget, but works so well, and the garlic is sooo yummy!
